Yes you do. Everyone has access to Linux

Go here and download Virtual Box. Virtual Box will allow you to run an operating system inside of Windows without affecting the parent operating system.

Once you have downloaded Virtual Box, you will need a Linux distribution. For a beginner I would recommend Ubuntu, but any flavor of Linux will work.

Here's a few links to download Linux

I've ordered them from lowest to highest learning curve. You should be able to plug the Ubuntu ISO into VBox and run it, while ArchLinux will require more work (there's no "installer" per se, and you'll need to set everything up manually).

VirtualBox Documentation can be found here. You can probably just skip to Creating your first virtual machine

[Corion]: Cosmic37: Basically, you read one file into a hash, keyed by your key, and then match the lines from the second file to that hash
[Cosmic37]: note that the two files only have datetimes which may match whereas other data per line is different format in file1 and file2 - is that really intersection?
[jedikaiti]: Hi Monks
[Corion]: Cosmic37: Well, if you want to use only parts of a line for the key, see split or whatever other mechanism to extract the key from the line
[Corion]: Hi jedikaiti!
[Cosmic37]: is there a webpage for full CB for this chat rather than side panel chat?
[Cosmic37]: thank you for advice
[Cosmic37]: peach greets jedi
[Cosmic37]: ok this one works better fullpage chat
